Tembo e-LV is a pioneering electric vehicle company that focusses on designing and building ruggedised electric off-road vehicle solutions with a focus on mining, infrastructure, and government services. The company is at the forefront of electric vehicle conversion for Toyota’s principal models, the Landcruiser and Hilux, which are equipped to function in harsh, off-road environments.
Tembo is a subsidiary of VivoPower which means that aside from electric vehicles, VivoPower offers complete sustainable energy solutions including solar systems, battery technology and microgrids, along with critical power systems services.
In addition to electric vehicles, we also supply conversion kits to our global partners. A kit contains all parts to convert a vehicle from diesel to electric, which includes the batteries, an e-motor, a reduction box, a charger, software, and many other components that make it all work together.
This means that Tembo develops all the parts, such as cable harnesses and DC/DC converters, plus ruggedising the vehicles to fully suit its purpose and use.
The development of the kits is currently based on a Toyota Land Cruiser and soon there will also be a conversion kit available for a Toyota Hilux. Both will be available for offroad and on road purposes after these vehicles go through a homologation process.
